I am in the process of determining what transmission type (z-wave, Insteon, etc.) and what interface (Mi Case Verde, Homeseer, etc.) would work best for our needs, and I have many questions in choosing between those. However, a question off the top I have is this: Is there an interface (sorry if that's not the correct language) that has an Android, iOS, and WP7.5/8 apps available? My wife has an Android phone, I have a WP8 phone, and we have an iPad2. I'd like for all 3 devices to have a native app for control.

If the answer is no, I'm assuming it's because of the lack of a WP8 app. If that's the case, is there typically a web interface that my WP8 phone could direct to? I think I could get by with that, whereas the Android app I think would be a necessity.

Thanks,
Matt

Ok, I'm assuming a no go on the Windows Phone app; can anyone comment if there is a browser interface for most of the products out there (Insteon, Mi Case, etc.)?

Thanks.

Me personally, I have several z-wave devices and a MiCasaVerde Vera3 controller. The Vera3's interface IS web based. There are Android and iOS apps for the Vera stuff, but I really don't know about the Windows stuff.

Thanks Nick. Question for you on the Vera3 and Z-wave; on the micasaverde.com site, they have some choices for z-wave products, but not nearly all of them. Do they only list the ones they know are compatible with the Vera? Ultimately my question is, can any z-wave device be used on the Vera? I'm confused, as it seems each site only pushes or sells certain manufacturers. Thanks.

I don't quite know the answer to your question. But my thoughts are that any Z-Wave device should work. I've almost only used GE stuff so far, but I'm pretty new to it myself. Just some lamp modules, a dimming lamp module, appliance modules, and a few switches. smile.gif

If anyone runs across this thread and is curious, there are some people at least trying for a WP8 Z-Wave app..
